                                   The 26th AMBYESE Conference
                                            is dedicated to
                                       The Xerox Foundation



                   From our earliest days, Xerox has been shaping
                  the idea of corporate social responsibility. Our
                  education and social service efforts are an ex-
                  tension of our belief that a successful corpora-
                  tion must be an active participant in society.
                  Today, Xerox Foundation is the hand that gives
                  back to the communities from which we draw
                  our employees, our customers, and our freedom
                  to conduct business. Xerox is proud to be a
                  long-time supporter of AMBYESE.

                  November 7, 2009

                     Dear Students, Educators, Parents and Corporate Participants:
                  On behalf of the entire Annual Multicultural Business Youth Educational Services Embarkment (AMBYESE)
                  family, welcome to the Twenty Sixth Embarkment.
                    The 26th AMBYESE is dedicated to the Xerox Foundation. Every since our inception, the Xerox Foundation
                  has been a corporate partner and major financial supporter. Over the past 26 years, the Xerox Foundation’s
                  support of AMBYESE programs has been AMBYESE’s life support. In terms of logic equivalence: The Xerox
                  Foundation is a supporter for AMBYESE, as oxygen is a supporter of life.” We are especially grateful to Dr.
                  Joseph Cahalan, president of the Xerox Foundation and Evelyn Shockley, executive director for their unwav-
                  ering support and commitment to develop our youth and future leaders of the 21st Century.
                     AMBYESE is being hosted at UCONN‟s Stamford Campus for the ninth year. We continue our commitment
                  of making a measurable educational impact on the lives of the 200 multicultural college bound participants
                  from schools across Connecticut and Metropolitan New York.
                  AMBYESE has a three phased program: 1) AMBYESE Conference, 2) S.T.A.F.F. - Student Tracking & Aca-
                  demic Fulfillment Force 3) Y.E.S., I Can -Youth Endeavoring to Succeed, I Can. Please visit our Web site for
                  more information.
                     All of our programs are offered free to all students! This is made possible by funding from AMBYESE‟s
                  corporate partners: Praxair Foundation, Xerox Foundation, PepsiCo Foundation, Wells Fargo Wachovia
                  Foundation, People’s United Community Foundation, Disney/American Broadcasting Company, Pitney
                  Bowes Employee Involvement Fund, University of Connecticut School of Business Administration, Stop &
                  Shop, American Express, CL&P and Patriot National Bank.
                  Xerox is the official documentation company. Xerox printed the 26th AMBYESE program journal. PepsiCo
                  products are the official beverages and snacks. STOP & SHOP is the official supermarket. Disney/ABC is the
                  official Theme Parks and Media Company. Commencing this year, everyone can come to a Walt Disney
                  World's theme park on their birthday and get in free. Anyone showing up with a valid ID including proof of
                  birthdate will get a free ticket on that day.
                     AMBYESE represents a unique opportunity for students to become acquainted with how “big business”
                  works. Today, students will learn how to apply their present-day school knowledge and work experiences
                  towards developing near-term careers. Students will interface with our team of highly successful mentors
                  who are employed by the above corporate partners. They‟ll be exposed to careers in accounting/finance,
                  banking, communications, human resources, engineering, research/development, marketing/sales and in-
                  formation technology and law.
                      Mission statement: AMBYESE prepares multicultural secondary school students for the challenges of a
                  more diverse workforce in the 21st Century. The objective is to motivate the students to “Strive For Excel-
                  lence” academically by exposing them to career options in the corporate sector, and to facilitate their anxie-
                  ties concerning “big business” by instilling a high-level of self-esteem in them so they learn about embark-
                  ing on careers through highly successful multicultural role models. Today, over 12,000 regional students
                  have earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in business, science, engineering, etc. as results of par-
                  ticipating in AMBYESE programs.
                     History: AMBYESE originated in Danbury Western CT State University‟s Ancell School of Business hosted
                  the 1st through 4th AMBYESE Conferences. Danbury High School hosted the 5th through 12th. Our student
                  population grew from 100 at Western to 1,100 at Danbury High School. After spending the first dozen year‟s
                  in Danbury, the venue was moved to Westchester County New York - The 13th and 14th AMBYESE Confer-
                  ences were hosted by White Plains High School; the 15th and 16th were hosted by Mount Vernon High
                  School; The 17th AMBYESE was hosted at Westhill High School, Stamford, CT and the 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st,
                  22nd, 23rd 24th and 25th were hosted at UConn’s - Stamford campus.
                    Our focus is “jump-starting” the careers of students, so they can qualify for scholarships available through
                  nonprofit organizations. We‟re passionate and honored to assist our nation by working with schools, par-
                  ents and corporate partners for the purpose of preparing students for the challenges ahead.....God Bless
                  America!
